On Wednesday, UC Provost and Executive Vice Chancellor Lawrence Pitts will be coming to the UC Davis campus.
The provost, who is the highest ranking academic officer of the UC system, will be holding an open forum for students, faculty and community members from 9:30 to 10:30 a.m. in the Memorial Union’s King Lounge. The provost would like to talk with the UC Davis community about any subjects it is interested in, which could include tuition and the UC’s budget.
“I’ll talk briefly about any or all of these topics and have an active dialog with the people who come to listen and/or talk. More fun for me and for them,” Pitts said.
Pitts also has plans to meet with Chancellor Linda P. B. Katehi and Vice Chancellor Ralph Hexter. He will also be talking with the Academic Senate, the Academic Federation and the council of deans.
This visit is one of many campus visits Pitts is making before his upcoming retirement. Pitts has agreed to maintain his post as provost until his successor is chosen.
